Excerpt: I purchased this calculator simply because I wanted to try out all the new functions and whatnot. While I didn't really expect much out of it initially, I must say that this particular calculator has exceeded my expectations. For one, not only does it have the necessary functions an ordinary off-the-mill calculator would have (i.e.
Excerpt: It took me a little bit to get use to using such a high tech calculator, as I am going back to school and doing college algebra and not use to all the things calculators can do now, but once I figured out how to use it, it has been such a great help to me with my algebra and it is great because it has all the formulas you need built right in and you just have to put in your variables it need to calculate! I would recommend to anyone taking advanced math class.
Excerpt: Bought this to replace my TI-36X solar which died. Needed a calculator that had US - metric conversions built in. What used to take 2 steps now takes a half dozen to dozen just to do the conversions. In all fairness to Texas Instruments, it does have a lot more types of conversions built it and other capabilities that I don't need.
Excerpt: This is the third calculator of this type my children needed for school. The most impressive thing about the product is that the batteries last for ever. Each of my children used this type of calculator and I never had to replace the batteries.
Excerpt: if you want to buy a non-graphing calculator so you could use it for your exams..... you would appreciate having this calculator. it does more than what I would expect from a calculator with this price.
Top tier scientific calculator which is easy to use and understand.

Summary: This calculator is simply the best calculator you can buy without venturing into the realm of graphing calculators. I would recommend this for all high school as well as 90% of college math courses. It's legal to use on all official tests, so that is a huge plus. Just when I thought the TI-30 X II couldn't be beat, this calculator came along. Highly recommended.
BEST calculator for proctored exams (FE, PE, SAT, etc.)
1 August 2014
Summary: Great calculator for anyone, but particularly students in the maths and sciences. I used it for the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) exam and it worked great. Being able to use simple functions like solve saved me precious time and played a factor in my passing the exam. It is THE best calculator you can get for such an exam, and although there are many cheaper options, they do NOT have the capabilities and power this one has. You will be glad you chose this one.
